Station Pier dates from 1864 and passenger ships, including the ferries to Tasmania dock here. In the past multitudes of migrants landed here. Although it is close to the city and there is a tram at the end of the pier I think that the facilities and transportation are not up to an acceptable standard for a city of over... More

Our ship docked here for a couple of days from Sydney on the way to New Zealand and although it brought back pleasant memories of when I arrived here from England 59 years ago it sure could do with an upgrade. It is very very tired not a good entry to the fair city of Melbourne. It is a nice... More

If the Victorian Govt is earnest in its quest to attract more cruise ships and inject more tourist funds into its economy, them it has to have a hard look at the shambles which is Station Pier. Traffic flow, both in and out, is a nightmare. When a cruise ship is in it can take 20 mins to move a... More

Small venue. Went for engagement party. Food was not too crash hot. Location was excellent. A fat lady wouldn't be able to fit in the toilet cubicle. House Sav Blanc tasted like $3 rubbish.

I have had many walking trips in numerous occasions and still I never got bored. It... More

Station Pier in Port Melbourne was the arrival point for many European migrants in the post war migration boom. The liners from Europe would discharge their human cargo here, who were hoping for a better life. Some refugees were literally homeless, they had nowhere else to go. Most adjusted well to life in Australia, but many never severed their psychological... More

Well worth a visit if you are down this way. You can pick up a tram from Flinders Street Station or Southern Cross. The tram meanders along a truly charming route that finishes near Station Pier. After the walk you can have a drink at the Pier Hotel. It's a great excursion and a lovely mix of city meets bayside.
